I think that might be a temporary fix though, as after cleaning my throttle body I put my DISA back in and cut the o-ring as well. All my car had after that was a check engine light but the car drove and performed normally.

When my car was doing the same thing, this is what I was told. However I had success in cleaning my throttle body and the codes haven't come back for almost a year. Apparently throttle body issues are common on the 323's.
